    PO BOYS SILENCER

    I sent off my tax stamp for a suppressor back in August, I purchased a PO-BOY Suppressor which is waiting on me at my local gun shop. Does anyone have experience with this brand of suppressors? I only gave $200 for it and the reviews seem pretty good.

    It's made of basic washers. The blast baffle is the same material as the rest of the baffles which means it'll erode at a fast rate. Bad news is they're inexpensive cause they're extremely cheap made. Good thing is that the learning experience is only costing you $400 total, which could've been put towards a quality suppressor that will last you a lifetime. This is why you ask these questions BEFORE you make a purchase. Not trying to be harsh but honest

    Can they be rebuilt once they are shot out? I was interested in these as well.

    Sure. Just head down to your local hardware store and buy the same diameter flat washers that the suppressor came with. Then when you burn holes through them just repeat. There's probably no more than $20 in material in that can. You'd actually be money ahead to just pay for a F1 stamp and go buy the same tube and flat washers for $20 and assemble it yourself

    ETA: Or just save up an extra $130 and buy a YHM turbo with a lifetime warranty. And it's made of inconel and 17-4.

    The saying buy once cry once seems most appropriate right about now.

    Thanks for the reply. I am looking for my first suppressor and admittedly know very little about them.

    Hey man, we all gotta start somewhere. It's good to ask questions and do your homework before spending your hard earned money. I know a lot people hate arfcom, but their silencer sub forum is a wealth of knowledge. Most of the guys posting over there have more money invested in stamps than most have in their whole gun collection

    Witt machine sells cans for everything under 500 with a stamp. Direct thread, kind of heavy, not top tier but they are good cans that won't break the bank. That is the cheapest I'd go. I've got 2. The 9mm can is a super can for a carbine, my 22 can is still waiting on a stamp

    just start off with quality. Like a lot of people on here I started off with a Huntertown Guardian. Yeah it still works but if something happens Iím stuck with a $400 crappy paperweight.

    you know that feeling you get after a while when it comes to guns, optics, and mounts? You tried the cheap route before and yeah it kinda worked but left you wanting more so you ended up spending money on something that will make you happy but already invested money into things that didnít do the job as expected? Donít let silencers be that

    Buy quality and will last and will have support after the purchase
